What's Wake Up, City! About

Publisher Summary

In this beautifully illustrated picture book, one little girl and her father are on their way to school as the whole city wakes up around them! The gumdrop sun rises high in the cotton candy sky. A woman stretches. She starts to run. The city morning has begun! The city is still fast asleep when a young girl and her father leave the house. But slowly, little by little, light starts to creep up over the buildings, and the city starts to wake up. As they walk through the drowsy streets, a woman begins her morning jog, street sweepers clean up the roads, stores begin to open, and food deliveries are made to stores and restaurants. Join these two on their morning walk to school through the city in this beautifully illustrated picture book.
